The Lockheed binge works
Fellow modellers . Upon Returning from a 4 month work project I found myself building Or restarting 4 Lockheed plane models at once ! A curious thing ! this is perhaps owing to the fact that some Models kits that are under way get put aside until one can decide on how to apply the decals on The Orion For example.
This especially on How to handle a large model and not mess it up and thinking technical ways to do so . ( I love large planes ! )
Or perhaps I am missing flying in and our of Burbank , the original and former home of Lockheed , when I go to Los Angeles.
( The Burbank airport has exhibits about Lockheed that are fascinating.)
The subconscious makes odd decisions sometimes !
Anyways I put the Orion aside and needed to put glue down on the Ventura. The Viking was a deformed kit that I managed to straighten out. Not being a millionaire I can have my own Skunkworks on my own bench!
I am so glad to be able to model again. Especially being home with all the Fires that are ripping our region apart. Smoke everywhere. It’s a yearly Summer event now. since 2017 we are eating it big and incurring huge losses in treasure and real estate.
CDF just agreed to swap seven C-130’s From the Coast Guard to transfer it to our state for firefighting purposes. Another Lockheed and my next build ! Or Maybe Lockheed is the best and most innovative California company.
Any suggestions on decal application on the Orion or what glue to use on the portholes after paint would be welcome.
Keep on building and stay healthy.
